Link to the SSL-VPN gateway
With SSL-VPN connection, you can access the campus network even when you are outside.
(Web, SSH, FTP, Gakumu-system and other JAIST inside contents will be available.)
SSL-VPN provides both "jaist-vpn1" and "jaist-vpn2" connections.
The difference is the route used for accessing an off-campus serve. There is no difference in access inside JAIST resources.
What is the differences from the previous fep connection?
The main differences from the previous service of dialup connection via (fep) server are:
- Before there was no distinction between inside and outside campus traffic.
- Now all services are available from the browser.
All traffic is encrypted HTTPS.
- The new service can be used with simple preparation without the need for additional applications.
